Sad news to report... Chet Lepinski lost his daughter this week from complications from pneumonia. Chet is an active participant in the hydroplane scene, including RC Hydros. He's been a contributor to numerous hydro websites, including his own and this one.
Here's the information about Jackie Kay Lepinski from Einan's Funeral Home in Tri-Cities, WA:
When someone we love passes away, we ache, but we go on. Our dear departed would want us to heal, after they are gone. Grief is a normal way to mend. The anguish and pain in our hearts; we need time to remember and time to mourn, before the recovery starts.
Let's draw together to recuperate, as we go through this period of sorrow; let's help each other, with tender care to find a brighter tomorrow.
Jackie Kay Lepinski went to be with her Lord on Monday, April 28, at Kadlec Medical Center in Richland, Washington. She was surrounded by her loving family and friends. She was born in Richland WA on November 4, 1969, to Chester and Sandy Lepinski. Jackie worked for Lockheed Martin for twenty years. She started in 1987 as a high school student and ended up in the Human Resource Department as a HR Specialist.
Jackie enjoyed many things in life. She grew up doing competitive roller skating until she was 12. She became very involved in the Tri-City Americans hockey team. She even went on a long road trip to Canada one time to support the team. Her latest enjoyment was cruising. She had been to Alaska, Hawaii, Caribbean, Panama Canal, and Mexico. Her next adventure was to go to Fiji. While cruising she had a chance to swim with the dolphins and go white water rafting.
She is survived by her parents Chester and Sandra (Richland), brother Brian (Richland), and sister Brenda (Everett). She is also survived by her many friends.
The family would like to extend our gratitude to the dedicated and caring professionals in the Intensive Care Unit at Kadlec Medical Center. These were the most incredible set of nurses. Each one of her nurses took very special care of her (Keith, Randy, Lisa, Kara, Gene, and Joy). Thank you for making her last days as peaceful as could be.
There will be a celebration of her life from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Friday, May 2nd, at Central United Protestant Church, Richland. The family has requested that instead of sending flowers please make a donation to the American Lung Association or the Kadlec Medical Foundation for further research on Acute Interstitial Pneumonia.
